It’s rightly said by someone “that the mind is everything” if it is under our control. Don’t let the mind control us. We know as human beings we’re overwhelmed by our own emotions i.e., happiness, sadness, excitement, etc.

These emotions keep on changing every second depending on the situation. This is very natural for any human being to get angry and to show their different emotions but sometimes when we face emotions like anger, anxiety, stress, and depression; all we feel is that we’re all alone and burst it out in anger which ends up messing up with our image and character.

But this book has caught the attention because of its title “the mind game” which is very captivating and goes well with the contents.

Let us also know a little about the author, the author Devika Das is an award-winning author and poet. Her first book “7 vows of marriage” was published on amazon kindle and the second book is “the mind game” in which she explains how we can master our emotions.

The author has described each section beautifully and in detail how we can manage relationships, manage anger, manage stress, and anger management. We play different roles in our life every day with everyone. It is required to understand each other's values. Thus, how can we capture our divine happiness? What are some tips to be followed to fall in love with ourselves again? Why do we get worried and how can we make it better?

please stop for a moment!

Ask yourself!

What emotion are you having while reading this blog? 

Happy? Sad? Angry? Stress? frustration?

If you are facing any issue related to your mental health then this book is the right pick for you.

calm down!

In today's scenario, stress and depression have become a big topic to talk about whereas, after Sushant Rajput's demise, everyone is talking about these topics. yes! This book makes us understand how to overcome it. one must practice this if facing innumerable dilemmas in daily life.

Everyone is busy running the rat race in meeting their own deadlines etc. we tend to forget that we need to take care of our mental health with physical, social, and intellectual health. we need to understand that If it is not handled well, it can cause us a serious problem.

Every action has an equal or opposite reaction. A human being has a reaction to everything whether it's positive or negative. But not forgetting, everything can be worked if we want to. Like in this book, the author has mentioned about six sections and each section covering its own chapters.

  1. Emotions:- how can we express them.

  2. Analyzing people:- respect an individual’s personality

  3. Live better with less:- self-satisfaction is must

  4. Go happy, go-lucky:- capturing divine happiness

  5. Angry:- speak up

  6. A happy workplace:- how the environment affects us.

Learning from the book:

  1. Never forget to express your feelings when you’re happy.

  2. Always speak out when your heart is full of emotional baggage.

  3. Stop criticizing, accept the challenges.

  4. Anger can be managed by not reacting harshly at the moment.

  5. Self-introspection is a must to master our own emotions.

  6. Happiness is a state of mind which is directly connected with our inner self.

  7. Develop high EQ (emotional quotient) in terms of self-awareness, self-management, social skills, physical health, mental health, and relationship, etc.

This is one of the best self-improvement books which I’ve come across. This book has helped me in improving my emotional stability. I am the one who gets short-tempered easily and faces severe mood swings. I didn't respond appropriately to what the other person was saying but intended to reply which created a mess and ended up arguing at the end.

This book has shifted my focus towards more on a positive attitude. To follow how anger can be managed, check out page no. 153 and 154 from the book. In my opinion, please don't read this book like a story but instead give your time and attention to the book.

Make sure that you put your best efforts in understanding the concept of each chapter, what it is actually conveying, and analyzing it in your daily life to get the best. This is definitely in my to-read list again for a more in-depth detailed understanding.

Try out these breathing exercises on this International Yoga Day

On this International Yoga day i.e. on June 21st,2020. Let us focus on breathing exercises while performing different yoga poses which increases our strength and flexibility. We all know as and when a baby arrives in this world, the first thing a baby does is to ‘breath’ and that first breath is nature’s purest sign of life that we see. Breathing is of course what we do every second and every day of our life. And deep breathing adds a valuable role in our life and every cell in our body gets recharged after deep breathing. Let us see what are the health benefits of doing this.

Deep breathing helps in:

  • Connecting with our body which takes away all the stress and worries.
  • Improving physical as well as mental health.
  • To stay calm which gives clarity in our thoughts.
  • Calming our nervous system.
  • Improving the lungs and digestive system and providing the required oxygen to the brain.
  • Feeling rejuvenated and enhancing our inner beauty.



1. First, sit in a comfortable position.

2. The spine should be straight. You can sit on the couch but best is to sit on a yoga mat.

3. There shouldn't be any kind of distraction while maintaining this posture.

4. Keep your facial muscles loose. 

1. Bhramari:- means the goddess of a honeybee. (A two-minute exercise)     

  • Allow your eyes to be closed with the tips of your forefingers and close your ears too with the help of your thumb.
  • Now slowly inhale deeply and while exhaling tries to make the 'hmmm' sound without opening the mouth (Also known as bee breathing technique).
  • Try to maintain a focus on this “Hmmm” sound and feel its vibration deeply.
  • Do this 3 times at a minimum.

 Note: Before opening your eyes, you have to rub your hands gently for a minimum of 30 seconds which will create energy known as ‘heat energy’ and place your hands all over your body parts and then open your eyes slowly.

2.  Aum (OM) chanting:- ( a three-minute exercise)

Aum is the universal sound. This mantra is known as the most effective method of meditation. This represents the power of the highest vibrations. One feels relaxed and stress-free after feeling its pure form of vibration. ‘OM’ is the short form of ‘AUM’.

  • It activates our root chakra. This is done with Gyan mudra but to gain more benefit, this can be done with pran mudra as well. Doing meditation with these mudras helps us to increase our concentration power.
  • Allow your eyes to close and make a sound with the word ‘O’ and feel its vibration.
  • You’ll feel a sense of vibration in your abdominal area.
  • Repeat this three times.
  • You can end this by saying ‘Shanti’ 3 times.

 Note: It purifies the environment and soothes our nervous system.

Out of our 24hrs of the busy schedule, we can take just 5 minutes to do these exercises which will help us to stay calm and more focussed. Believe me! You’ll feel more energetic after doing this and with its regular practice, it can be noticed that one has become more calm and lively. 

These breathing exercises must be included in our daily workout routine. let us know which all breathing exercises you do everyday to balance the energy system of the body.

80%Mindset 20%Skill

Book: 80%Mindset 20%skills

Publisher: Adhyyan Books

Author: Devanand Gadhvi

Genre: Non Fiction (Self-Help)

Pages: 230

Rating: 5*

Reading Time for the blog: 5 minutes

I was wondering how a motivational author inspires us every moment by sharing his pieces of advice. Recently, I came across an ebook whose title caught my attention. So, Without wasting much time, I downloaded the book in a second and started reading it. Today I am going to tell you about this fantastically written book by the author “ Mr. Devanand Gadhvi.”

About the Author: 

I’m inspired by the life story of the author Devanand Gadhvi Whose's father was a truck driver and his mother played the best role in providing him the best education despite having many struggles in life. Dev Gadhvi is an international keynote speaker, best selling author, and a business coach, etc. He’s India’s first PassionPreneur mentor. He has published two books i.e 80% mindset,20% skills and the other book is 6 Sundays a week.

Every word played a magic role that compelled me to keep reading it. The author has explained. how his parents have helped him to grow, how his experiences in fortune 500 companies helped him to grow skills in life, He has expressed clearly how he faced all the challenges and how he has achieved success and managed all his tasks very well. 

He has highlighted these 3 steps formulas to become unstoppable.


I was wondering how his story would help me to get inspired. And yes, the author has shared a few practical questions and exercises and shared a few tips related to business and personal growth which made me think that where I see myself in the coming 5 years. Here, the author tries to explain that If we want a rich and happy life, we need to plan it now and work on it accordingly.

The average mindset is not going to work if we want a rich life but certain massive actions need to be taken. Rich life doesn’t mean that we will have unlimited cash but in terms of good health, family relations, physically strong, mentally fit, and having a good rapport in the society. One of my favorite part of the  book Is the detailed discussion on  the  people whom we’re surrounded with:

Losers: Those who see negative in everything and don’t make an effort at all.

Comforters: Those who put minimum efforts.

Averagers: Those who achieve their small targets.

Unstoppables: Those who keep on moving ahead and take massive action every time. They’re the risk-taker and keep on challenging themselves.

He has asked certain questions on ‘why’. Find out your ‘WHY’? Asking This question can change one’s perception of their life and their goals. If we can answer this, It’ll only help us to have clarity in the mind. 

The book of the title itself describes that mindset is everything. It has the power to record and execute. If 80% of our mind is set then we can plan for anything which can be achieved with 20% of skill. Here, he tells us a story of two friends Moe and Joe, and about their mindset and skills and how they used them in their personal and professional life. How they acquired the skills with the time depending on the requirement based on life situations. 

Again, here the author conveys us a message by comparing the middle-class mentality vs millionaire mentality, average life, and rich life, etc. He explained how middle-class families think that spending money on themselves is the wastage of money whereas a millionaire thinks spending money on themselves helps them to acquire skills. The author himself has invested a lot in himself and that what makes him outstanding in the crowd.

The book is written in a descriptive style. There are many takeaways, key points from the book which can be helpful to anyone in their self-transformation. And how the author has invested his time accordingly in each aspect of life also it is related to social, emotional, physical, family, health, Income and fixing the mind, etc.

To sum up, quickly, the author has shared everything about his personal and professional life. This book has really left a remarkable mark on me and I would highly recommend it to those who love reading self-help books and looking forward to transforming their lives and seeing it from a new aspect of view. 

Of course! His second book 6 Sundays a week is absolutely on my to-read list. You’ll be updated once the review is on the blog.

Thanks for reading!
